My words are thoughts, feelings and gut reactions to a body of work, which I believe to be one of the most important being constructed by any photographer currently working within the United Kingdom. I felt that I needed to put these words into a form, a structure.
I have been aware of Jim’s work for approximately three years and over that time we have swapped e-mails, tweets, Facebook comments and spoken over Skype in front of a number of different audiences. We have got to know each other. We share similar opinions on life, politics, photography and perhaps most importantly music. I commissioned one of the first published articles about him and his images and I helped connect him to his current publisher. I know his work. It’s content it’s intent and the process by which it is created. We both live in Cameron’s Britain.
